MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (June 23, 2016) - West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen has announced that sophomore receiver David Sills is transferring to a junior college to further his collegiate academic and athletic career.

"We appreciate everything David has done for the Mountaineer football program. He has done everything asked of him and has been a great teammate," Holgorsen said. "He has decided to transfer to pursue his dream of playing quarterback in college. We wish him nothing but the best in all of his future endeavors on and off the field."
